Her Royal Highness Princess Reema Bandar Al Saud, CEO of Alfa International and Al Hama LLC, has reconfirmed her patronage and position as Chair of the Judges Board for the Arab Woman Awards KSA for the second consecutive year. The Awards aim to raise public awareness on the significant achievements by Arab women in the region and to provide young women with inspirational role models.
Established in 2009 by ITP Group, the Arab Woman Awards has to-date recognised over 230 women from the UAE, Kuwait, Qatar and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia across a diversity of fields that include business, energy, entrepreneurship, charity, media, government and literature.
“Year after year the Arab Woman Awards has provided a platform where similar minded women can come together and thrive in their accomplishments,” says HRH Princess Reema Bandar Al Saud. “It is a great privilege to be part of such a noble award ceremony that not only highlights the important contributions of women in the region but also imparts inspiration for the next generation of young Saudi women.”
Other Judges Board members for this year’s awards include Lina Al Maena, Founder of Jeddah United Sports Company; Amina Al Jasim, prominent Saudi fashion designer and Founder of Dar Bresam Fashion; Lateefa Alwaalan, Founder and General Manager of Yatooq and Basma Felimban, internationally recognised Saudi artist.
Sue Holt, Executive Director, ITP Consumer and Founder of the Arab Woman Awards adds, “We are proud to be able to provide a platform for such talented individuals and a means of celebrating their success. The standard of nominees is high in KSA as the women are highly educated and very determined individuals.”
With nominations flooding in for exceptional women from across the Kingdom, the 2015 Arab Woman Awards KSA is expected to present the richest field yet of inspiring women. There will be twenty awards provided as there has been an addition of four new award categories this year – New Media, Finance, Energy and Legal. The winners will be presented at a female-only gala dinner held at the Faisaliah Hotel in Riyadh at the end of March, hosted by celebrity presenter Diala Makki.
